As some GTA residents are banging pots and pans for healthcare workers and others are plugging in their Christmas lights to brighten the darkness created by COVID-19, the CN Tower is hopping on board and doing their part to “brighten the mood” in Toronto.
Although one of Canada’s top attractions is closed until May 30th or until government officials give them the go ahead, they are doing something to lift the spirits of Torontonians.
If the tower is visible from your home, you can peer through your window at the top of each hour while self-isolating, you will be treated to a spiritous lightshow courtesy of the city’s most recognisable attraction.
The dazzling light performance will span the entire 553 metres of the third tallest tower in the world. Here is a preview posted from the CN Tower’s Twitter account.
The tower is famous for capturing the mood of the 6ix with different light displays throughout each season. For example it was lit green on St. Patrick’s Day, purple and red for Raptors games, blue and white for big Maple Leafs games and of course red and white for Canada Day.
The hourly light show during the COVID-19 pandemic will take things a little further.
As far as the closure of the city’s most iconic attractions, their statement reads:
“The health and safety of our staff, guests and tenants is always our first priority. With that in mind, the CN Tower will be suspending operations effective Saturday March 14, 2020 with plans to re-open on Tuesday April 14, 2020. Updates will be posted as necessary.”
